Life is an application to experiment with the wonderfully entertaining Conway's Game of Life.
The Game of Life is a deceptively simple game published by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
Just drag your fingers over the screen to start and guide the Game of Life on your screen as the pattern evolves. Completely configurable including algorithm, color schemes, speed, size and several other parameters for presentation.
• Supports multitouch to create and guide the algorithm.
• Many predefined alternative algorithms and also complete freedom to configure any algorithm giving over 200 000 different combinations.
• Pause, resume, save and restore special life patterns.
• Change speed and size of generations.
• Support 8-way, 6-way or 4-way connections for algorithms.
• Customize color palette with several predefined themes and a custom color picker.
• Touch brush editor with many predefined well known predefined patterns.
• Highly optimized and can handle cell size down to 1 pixel very well.
• Unified binary support for iPad & iPhone devices.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
Fixed to work on retina display. Also improved performance on newer devices.
Though this app is for a very specific audience, they did a perfect job.
Best CGoL app in existence, but still lacking save/restore functionality. It would be amazing if that were available. Copy paste would be nice but isn't necessary.
To clarify for the other users: square only uses the 4 adjacent but orthogonal uses 4 adjacent and 4 diagonal.
Once you understand the parameters and configuration (see other reviews for the difference between orthogonal and square grids - for classic Life you want orthogonal which is not the default) this app is a highly functional, easy to use cellular automata simulator.
